Living with missing teeth can create all kinds of stress. Losing teeth can be stressful as it is, and the ways by which this happens is often traumatic and has a serious impact on your oral and dental health. Gaps in your smile can put a significant amount of strain on your bite and can cause any surrounding teeth to shift in place. Gaps in your smile can also stress anyone out when it comes to speaking or smiling in front of others. If you are looking to replace missing teeth, our Brooklyn cosmetic dentist can help. Gary Herskovits, DDS can provide eligible patients with dental implants to help replace missing teeth and to help you restore your smile and your bite.
There are several methods used to replace missing teeth. Dental bridges, dentures and dental implants are all methods of replacing missing teeth. The reasons behind each method often depend on which teeth are missing as well as the patients preferences. For patients who need teeth replaced that are integral to biting are usually prescribed dental implants because they are stronger than other methods and because they work just as effectively as natural teeth. Additionally, patients who desire a more natural looking smile may also find dental implants to be a preferable option. Dental implants gain their strength from their use of titanium posts. These posts are surgically inserted into your jawbone where they will meld with the bone and become a makeshift tooth root. These posts meld with bone in a completely biological process called osseointegration and is just as strong as a natural tooth root. Once these posts have healed properly, your artificial teeth will be placed into them. These artificial teeth will be crafted and designed to look natural and to match any remaining teeth that you have. Our Brooklyn cosmetic dentist, Gary Herskovits, DDS, will plan out your entire treatment and the design of your new smile.
